Optimize your health and wellness by balancing your essence, energy & spirit.
Programs uniquely tailored to the individual.
In long-established Chinese traditions, the "Three Treasures" are the essential energies sustaining human life:
精 JING Nutritive essence
氣 QI Vitality, energy, force
Jing, translated as “essence” is a deep, vital essence, inherited from your parents and strengthened with the energy extracted from the food you eat. Jing is responsible for your growth and
development as a child, and your ability to reproduce as an adult. It governs the unfolding of life’s changes.
Qi is normally translated as "air" or “energy”. It is produced from the air you breathe and the food you eat. This means that you need good quality food and air, and strong digestive and respiratory systems in order to produce Qi.
Shen is normally translated as “spirit,” and encompasses your intelligence, thought processes, emotions, and spirituality. When the Shen is strong and settled, you are calm, peaceful, and wise. A weak or unsettled Shen manifests as anxiety, a racing mind, depression, or more serious mental or emotional conditions.
Jing, Qi, and Shen work in harmony with each other. There must be an abundance of Jing and Qi for Shen to be strong. If Jing and Qi are weak, Shen will be weak also. Likewise, Jing and Qi support each other to create Radiant Health. If any one of these treasures are weak, there will be illness.
At 3T Acupuncture & Wellness, the concept of holistic harmony is our focus as we partner with you to achieve optimal wellness.
In the modern healthcare system, alternative or complementary medicine such as Chinese medicine has become a viable, proven treatment for many conditions. Some of our customized complementary therapies include: acupuncture, cupping, herbs, moxibustion, gua-sha, electro-acupuncture and yoga.
